~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The 10th Age is now closed. Everything is still solvable but no more entries for this stage will be accepted. :)

This is the 10th Stage of the competition. Rules and prizes can be found at viewtopic.php?f=5&t=573


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How cryptic.....

You'll need to know your stuff for this one. If any of it stumps you, Google is your friend.
I'm also here to help but I'm not going to give too much away.

Some people may find it fun to figure out which methods I have used to encipher my messages... others may prefer to just get stuck in to decryption. For the later I'm posting the methods below.

Other than a couple of minor hiccups which have now been ironed out, that puzzle was amazing.

This Age was like biting into the richest, juiciest steak I've ever eaten.
A most excellent gauntlet of puzzles, sir!

No bookmark draw entrants yet. I'm thinking I shall leave this Age open in sudden death mode, meaning the first person to solve it that hasn't already won a bookmark becomes an instant winner.

Is there anyone wanting to win?

If you don't get any bookmark drawings, you could always award one of us a second bookmark. I'd hate for the grand prize drawing to be delayed
